    Thank you to the 2nd/3rd page posters, such as ericthefish Zinsch Jakeandalfie and Bryan681972 etc, for posting useful comments and analysis.

    Thanks HenroPlod, but think the only really useful analysis was Mr Jakeandafile.  The rest of us couldn't see that there was a clear advantage.  For my part, I could see the bishop fork threat, but missed the extremely tricky fact that the black N is also attacked. Time for a Sunday puzzle methinks!

    I don't get it, why doesn't the queen capture the bishop when it moves to c5-why move the king?

    This puzzle is not correct, I think? After white fxe6, black could easily

    checkmate white in one move: rxr(d8). Aren't I right?

    Black is allway's in check, after fxe6 white check's with Bg6+and never has a chance to mate with RxRd1#

  • #196

    Where is the new one???

  • #197


  • #198

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the line below winning for white?

    1.Bc5 Ke8 2. Qxd6+ fxd6 3. Bg6+ Qf7 4. Rxd6++
